How do I know Jesus loves me?

Jesus said he came to save only lost sheep of Israel. How do I know he also died for me? When He says to his disciples that he is with them to the end of the ages, how can I aply these words to me? He didn´t say it to me. How do I know Jesus wants me and loves me and all he has ever said…how do people know that these words may be adresses also to them?

As the old children’s song goes: “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.”

Jesus’ initial ministry was to the House of Israel, but after His resurrection He told his disciples to convert the entire world (Matthew 28:19-20).
